Clean pour, fairly light head with little lacing. Cloudy straw color. Quintessential wheat beer. Fruit and spice, coriander, smell. Taste of golden wheat and floral notes with a milky but effervescent mouth feel. Absolutely wonderful beer across the board.

A: Hazy light orange, 1 inch white head, spotty lacing

S: Spice, clove, lime, wheat malts, really nice smell much like a hefewiezen

T: Same as smell, that spice really comes through to make a magnificent experience, lime comes through, little sweetness, wheat malts, bubblegum on the tail end

M: Medium to light, carbonated well

O: Really nice beer. The bottle says belgian style which I totally get with the spice and bubblegum taste from the belgian yeast. Has just enough lime kick to make this a great beer experience.

I enjoyed this one.. It reminded me of a Hacker Pschorr wheat beer. Would definitely get this again.

Great Beer while on vacation

This beer probably gets some extra points as every thing taste better on vacation.

Pours nice and the color is on the money for the style.

The taste is well balanced and surprised me that the taste was very on the traditional Belgium style Wit and not your normal American Wheat beers.

Nice flavors and the lime twist was very subtle and works well with a nice smell

I had low expectations when I bought this beer but was very surprised on how good good it was.. Well done!!

Found on tap throughout the Keys. Had it at the Island Grill on Islamorada. Paired with seared ahi dinner. Great beer for sea food.

Found the beer to be very drinkable. Excellent choice for after a hot day on the water. Poured cloudy yellow - definitely unfiltered. Head was nice and fluffy although an orange slice killed the head immediately. On the second round I skipped the orange (beer does not need it). Head had good retention. Has a very nice aroma - there's a lot going on. The orange and lime fought for my attention but turns out to be a nice touch, the lime that is. Just enough coriander creates a nice balance of spice and citrus. Good to the last drop - sediment and all.

Found the bottle in local supermarket. Very good from bottle exceptional from tap.

BOD 150/14. Pours a hazy golden with a touch of amber. World class retention, outstanding head volume and lacing.

World class nose of coriander, a nice citrus sprightliness that is lime heavy with notes of orange, a general subtle spiciness from the wheat, yeast and a touch of biscuit.

Light medium body with a very smooth texture. World class carbonation with good effervescence in the middle and a rousing prickly punch in the finish.

The flavor profile is outstanding - quite intense, nicely complex and well balanced. It begins with a rush of coriander that yields to clove. Phenolic clove slowly fades into the middle citrus elements - tart lime that flows into a subtly sweet orange. Wheat makes an appearance as the background over which the finish begins - slightly grainy and cracker like. The finish is a slow fade of coriander, clove and lime.

Wit brewed with Real Key-Lime
12oz->Saison Dupont glass

A ~ Quite an aggressive pour yielding a 1/4" of head
in an effervescent ring. Slightly murky orange with a brown tone.

S ~ Good punch of tangy yeast with the key-lime coming through rather nicely...hint of spice (coriander)

T ~ Very spirited, subtle flavors: A touch of key-lime, touch of pear, touch of sun-kissed grain/malt & a touch of spice all on a lovely soft body of mellow citrus-peel & yeast. Wonderful.

M ~ Nice balance! Malt does not attack the palette one bit & the addition of key lime was very refreshing & pleasantly tart.

D ~ Was extremely surprised by this one. Would not expect a beer representing Key West to be true to form. Extremely delicious, should be seeked out.

cheers!

Pours an apropriately cloudy straw yellow with a big fluffy white head.

The smell is full of spicy corriander, some fresh grain, a little must, and a nice hint of orange and key limes.

This is a fairly well-executed wit with classic spice and citrus flavors augmented by the key limes. I really like what the key limes do in this brew.

The feel is light and full. Very refreshing.

I came into this not really expecting much. The brewery has a reputation for "meh" beers and I thought this would be no exception. I was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this beer. Overall it was solid, not mindblowing, but solid.

Not a great deal of smell, but nice wheat taste right at the first touch to the tongue, slight evervescence.

Great color, ample head with retention until finish. One of the best tasting witbiers I've ever had.

Appearance: Opaque yellow with a one finger cap and solid lacing.

Aroma: citrus peel, mostly orange but a touch of key lime as well.

Flavor: Key lime peel comes through more as a tart citrus, and is balanced well by the sweet orange. Hints of coriander, over a fairly neutral grain and yeast profile.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dissipating finish.

Overall: I'm a fan, cool twist to a popular beer style.
